HTTPS stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure. Similarly, HTTP stands for Hypertext Transfer Protocol.

The difference between HTTPS and HTTP is in the encryption of information being sent between clients and servers.

Nowadays, most websites have HTTPS because the lack of encryption on information in HTTP means that whoever hosts the network(for example, shares Wi-Fi) can read what you’re doing on internet.

Besides encryption, HTTPS gives the protocol for your browser and server communication, defining how are requests and responses made.
